Several projects in one solution with cmake and visual studio

1 Answers

Every cmake call to add_library or add_executable creates a new project in your solution.

cmake visual studio 2017 command line

I have a Visual Studio 2010 solution with 5 projects in it, two libraries and three applications (that depend on the libraries). I would now like to migrate the build system to CMake (to also be able to compile under Linux).

I've already found out how to write a CMakeLists.txt for one project and create a .sln file out of it that compiles in VS. However, I can't find a solution to specify in a CMake file each individual projects and then automatically let CMake create a VS .sln with those 5 projects in it.

How do I have to structure my projects and CMakelists to accomplish this?
